    Thanks for the info! It did come with a CD that I haven't looked at yet. I'm going to wait for my 2nd one to show up tomorrow and then install these. Right now I'm going through my drives and deleting unnecessary old stuff. It's amazing how much garbage you can collect on a drive.

    I have officially entered this decade! My wife got me a smart phone for Christmas. In fact I'm posting from it right now. You'll probably be seeing me around here much more now that I can visit on the go. Hooray!

    Lol, grats. I, too, recently got a Smartphone. It's the LG Sunshine (so nothing all that great, but serves my needs well enough). Which one did you get?

    Woot! About time! We expect to see more posts now that the WOW expansion has been out for 6 months and you have a new phone. No _reasonable_ excuses remain now.

    I have one of the green ones too. (Razer Deathstalker)

    Works pretty good for me.

    Also using a K90. It's a little loud, but it has good tactile feedback.

    Picked up a MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition at Microcenter last night for $85 after Tax and Rebates. (This Board: MSI USA). Those Combo Deals at Microcenter are the Bees Knees. My son wanted to pick up a i7 4790K ($279 at Microcenter) to plug into his own Krait, thus freeing up a i5-4690K to use in another PC...so...since I had a CPU, I decided to take advantage of his i7 purchase, and grab a Z97 MB with it...$20 off because it's a combo, and it already had a $15 Rebate. I could have picked up a Z97 PC Mate for $30 less I guess, but that Krait just looked so great @$85 that I couldn't pass it up! So, since I'm dying to assemble another PC, my Daughter is getting a surprise upgrade to her Z77 based PC. I also happen to have a recently orphaned (again from my Son's machine) R9 280 that I picked up from Kenny awhile back...so between the New CPU, new MB and a new Video Card (750ti to R9 280), I think she's going to be pretty pleased. Oh, and some Purple LED Strips, and perhaps another SSD...and...and...lol But...on point. I LOVE those MSI Krait MB's! LOL S.

    I really like that MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition Mainboard.

    I just got a pair of Z170 boards but I only have one CPU for them. I'm not sure where my i5-6600K will fit in.
    I plan for a i7-6700K next month if I can sprout some extra cash.

    The boards are an ASRock Fatal1ty Z-170 Gaming K6+, and a Gigabyte Z-170X Gaming-6.
    I'm really not sure where to put the i5 part, but I'm leaning toward the ASRock board with the two GTX-690s in it for Quad-SLI.
    The GPUs will be under water, (360mm rad) and the CPU will be AIO cooled. (240mm rad)

    Any input would be appreciated.

    That's a tough one...I'm partial to MSI personally...but that changes depending on how cool a Motherboard looks...or how cheap it is...or...well, you get the idea. Having said all that, I picked up a 6600K and an ASRock Z170M Pro4S ASRock Z170M Pro4S Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (Z170M Pro4S) - PCPartPicker this fall, and really like it. It seems solid and reasonably well designed. The software is gimmicky, but their UEFI update system is pretty nice. "Official" Memory Compatibility is pretty sparse across the Z170 spectrum right now, and availability of larger DIMM sizes is a bit hit and miss depending on the DIMM Speed, so it can be a bit tough to find "approved" DIMMS, but otherwise I have no complaints.

    My last Gigabyte (think it was a Z77) was OK, but the build quality wasn't what I expected, and I steered clear of them after that.

    It's a tough call though and comes down to features I guess. The Gigabyte has Dual Gig-E (one of which is Intel). The Asrock More USB-3 ports, as well as More SATA connectors. However the Gigabyte has 2 x M.2 slots which just might be more relevant over time. The Gigabyte also supports more Memory Speeds

    Personally, I'd probably go with the Gigabyte because of the dual ethernet (particularly because one is Intel) and the dual M.2 Slots, and likely better memory support. However, having said that the Gigabyte might be a better match for the i7 next month...

    This is a tough call. Tell you what, you use the Gigabyte, send me the Asrock, and I'll take on the burden of getting a new CPU...LOL

    Works pretty good for me.

    Also using a K90. It's a little loud, but it has good tactile feedback.
    Yeah my last was the K70. about 1/4th of the LEDs went out after 3 months.

    My K90 is almost 3 years old. All the lights still work fine.

    I have not babied this thing either. (I slap it around like a red-headed step-child)
